A Room of Her Own
900 Hillsborough Street
Raleigh, North Carolina 27603
We all have our own rooms, don't we? What is so special about "a room of her own?"
Women have traveled a long, long way since the British author Virginia Woolfe compiled two papers which
were read to scholars in 1928 into a long essay which questions why men have all the power while women
just have children. "A Room of One's Own"is about creativity and writing, but it can also be interpreted to be about
womens' experiences in general.
We occupy many rooms as we expand our experiences and our knowledge. We are no longer relegated to the
kitchen, unless by choice if we enjoy cooking. The rooms we move among don't have to be enclosed by walls. Any
space we live in becomes "a room." Yes. there are dorm rooms, classrooms, dining rooms,, libraries and lounges. But
there are also gymnasiums, soccer fields, tennis courts, swimming pools and all of the areas that exist off this campus.
Orientation finds many of us literally moving into a new room. Others of us rearrange the one we already live in to
prepare for the coming year. A corner is set up for studying. A place is found for the computer or word processor. Old
books are moved to make way for the new ones.
The year stretches before us like a long corridor lined with rooms just waiting to be discovered and explored.

Orientation was, as always, busy, tiring, and fun. We thought
we would never learn all the information we were presented
with. Even returning teachers needed some brushing up. Girls were
scattered all over campus, headed for meals, placement tests, and
numerous other meetings. We had parties to relieve stress, made new
friends, and helped each other interpret schedules.
Throughout orientation the "girls in the blue shirts" were there, ready
to point us in the right direction. Although it was fun, after almost a

Most of the students of Saint Mary's left and went
home as Fran approached Raleigh, but a few brave
souls weathered it out. The girls of Smedes had to
leave their rooms at one o'clock in the morning and
gather in the TV lounge. That was when the power
went out. Things didn't improve. By dawn, the cam-
pus of Saint Mary's was a mess. Dean Jones finally
sent all the girls home and closed school for a week
when the lack of power meant there was no way to
cook food. Trees were thrown everywhere, including
onto the buildings, and people had to watch where
they stepped because there were power lines strewn
all over back campus. The city of Raleigh didn't look
much belter. Debris was still sighted on curbs as late
as December. However terrible the storm was. Saint

Life As A Saint 1998 Stagecoach
In the past year there have been more changes on campus than there have be
in the one hundred and fifty six years of the school's existence. From the clos
of the college in the spring, to the opening of East Park (the ninth grade loui
was moved to 2nd Holt after Fall Break) as an exclusively academic buildi
things have been reshaping and growing in new directions. The yellow wo
frame building on back campus and the parking lot in front of it are go
replaced by a vast expanse of green. High School students no longer thun<
through the halls of upper Smedes. They are housed in Cruickshank Dormito
New faces and personalities have infused a high level of energy into b
academics and activities.
Saint Mary's has always been a center of faith, learning, and sisterhood. Th<
traditions are still alive and thriving
If any one person alone could represent
the prestige, honor and high standards
of Saint Mary's, Dean Mary Lou Jones
would without a doubt be that person.
Her genuine smile brightens any room,
even' if you find yourself in her office
for a lecture. She touches those whom
she meets in a way which is unforgetta-
ble. Her high standards inspire girls to
push themselves beyond their limits.
Whether on the tennis court, in her
office, or socializing with students, De-
an Jones is supportive, encouraging and
a true friend to all.
The students who attended Saint Ma-
ry's in 1998 are not the first group to
feel this admiration for Dean Jones. We
quote from the 1973 yearbook.
"As we watched her through many long
hours of drudgery and relaxation, she
has kept her cool and continued to ad-
minister to almost every girl at Saint
Mary's her talents and advice. To eve-
ryone who has known her, she has been
a true light in the way of darkness, and
everyone who has not come to know her
has been deprived of a teacher-student
relationship that throughout any stu-
dent educational career would be long
remembered and cherished as a well
spent fraction of a lifetime."
It is with the utmost admiration and
respect of a remarkable woman, leader,
friend and role model that we dedicate
the 1998 Stagecoach to Dean Mary Lou
Dean Jones and Daisy spent time

came to live at Saint Mary's.

One of the brightest new additions to Saint
Although St. Mary's is rarely hailed as a haven of
change, there exists little fear in the face of some-
thing new. Among all the adjustments that have
come with transforming the school into a prep
school this year, people have been some of the most
crucial additions. One has had remarkable success
in becoming a well-loved member of the St. Mary's
community in a short amount of time — not only
because of her charming personality, but also be-
cause of the numerous trips and adventures she has
engineered. Wihtout her efforts (and the efforts of
her alter-ego Muffy), a lot of St. Mary's most talked-
about events would never have gotten off the
ground — leaving the students with nothing to
comment on but southwestern night and wreath-
making parties. St. Mary's off-campus activities
would be a far cry from what they have been with-
out Bridget Collins leading the way. Ask any ninth
grader about their orientation retreat and you will
be bombarded with enthusiasm regarding Bridget's
getting-to- know-you exercises. Ask anyone if the
boys at Episcopal are some fine-looking specimens
of manhood, and you will be met with some very
positive responses (even Liz the senior may verify
that). It is with much love and affection that the
Stagecoach staff dedicates the yearbook to a woman
smart enough, strong enough, and fun enough for
the job: Bridget Collins.

from one or two! We'll never forget our faculty]
who turned us into who we are; if it weren't for
their personal guideance, we wouldn't have got
ten too far. The thought of every friendship we'll
always hold so dear, how SMC brought us to\
gether, and ended in our final year, Saint Mary'k
is not just school or dorms and mixers and boyk
but a place so indescribable that holds our hearP
aches and joys... So no matter where we are or
what our lives will be, You know we'll never
forget our home, good oV SMC!!! I
